Not much was said about the game during the briefing, however a short video was shown of the game featuring a 2-on-2 battle that of course included the star of the franchise, Pikachu. The game looks very much like Pokemon Stadium for the Gamcube, but with slightly better visuals.
Pokemon Battle Revolution will take adavantage of WiiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Wifi connection as well. This is the news all Pokemon fans have been waiting for. While details on how the game will be played online werenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t disclosed, the possibilities will have fanboys on internet forums for hours.
